Happy Birthday, Ping!

Little Ping has not been with us very long, but one of the things we were really looking forward to was celebrating her 4th birthday with her.  You can imagine our disappointment when just the day before her birthday she became seriously ill and needed to be hospitalized.


After thinking it over, and discussing with her doctors, we decided we could still celebrate in the hospital.  We brought the cake we had ordered, candles, and a special birthday crown.  The hospital staff provided balloons and a few other small gifts.

 Ping looked rather warily at the cake.  We wonder if she's ever had a cake, or celebrated a birthday before? 

 The candles are lit and everyone sings happy birthday:

Since Ping is on CPAP and has a trach, she cannot blow out the candles herself.  But she watches with interest:

Although her appetite is off and she's not very hungry, she politely tastes it anyway:

Happy Birthday, sweet little Ping!We hope you feel better soon, and promise that next year will be even better!
